Passengers have to prepare themselves for some travel disruption following snowfall and other weather problems at three major Norwegian airports.



Oslo Gardermoen, Stavanger Sola, and Bergen Flesland were all reporting delays this morning.

Airports authority Avinor reports Sola is open for traffic, but warns there may be intermittent brief runway closures to allow for snow clearing. 

It is still snowing in the area at the moment.

In Bergen, early flights were delayed up to two and half hours. Current delays to some departures are about 20 to 30 minutes.

Staff says snow is still falling.

Gardermoen press spokesperson Vegar Gydstad tells The Foreigner that fog has caused some difficulties this morning.

“Delays vary, however. Some flights are leaving on time. Weather problems in Europe are also creating some problems for us and affect airspace spacing for landings and take-offs.”

Passengers are advised to check with their airline or via Avinor’s website (external link).
